Paper Abstract

A novel scheme for simultaneous compensation of dispersion and loss is proposed. This should be realizable by doping an optical fiber having a high negative dispersion coefficient at 1.55 /mm with erbium ions. Numerical calculations are presented for a typical design example. Such an erbium doped dispersion compensating fiber (ED-DCF) should be a promising alternative as a more compact unit as compared to the spliced combination of an EDFA and DCF as two distinct components.
